About the Work
Mats can vary greatly. Artists commonly use a mix of naturally dyed and undyed fibre to create a striking
variation of coloured bands. Some artists also incorporate different types of looping to produce different patterns and textured finishes. Each type of mat, fibre bag, basket and dilly bag has its own name in the various languages spoken in the Maningrida region.
